Oh my! How can it be December already??!! It was a very busy last few days with Thanksgiving falling right at the end of the month. Lots of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, cranberry salad, corn pudding, homemade rolls and some really yummy pies. It was all good...the food, the company and the weather! Here is the card I came up with for the CCAYR December Challenge.
The challenge was to use a 1 word sentiment, 2 embellishements and 3 layers. The yummy DP is the Christmas Mint collection by SEI, Cocoa Clusters. I love the brown, red, green. white and silver combo. Snowflakes always catch my eye. I used the sentiment from See-D's Happy Birthday set. I stamped and embossed the sentiment is brown ink on a piece of red cardstock. A piece of white cardstock with one scalloped edge was place under the red strip. The silver snowflake is by Imaginisce and the red one is by Stampin' UP. I layered them and attached to the card with a brad. That would be 1 embellishment and the 2nd is my brown button added on top of the snowflakes. I chose to keep the card rather simple and show off the yummy DP.
Stop over and check out all the wonderful designs using the new challenge for December at the CCAYR Blog and maybe you will get inspired to start or finish your holiday cards.
I hope you have a wonderful December and enjoy every day of the holiday season!
